Challenge Day 4: I'm Not That Girl

Hiya Everyone! =)

Any one else having a bad hair day? Today's song come from my favorite musical, "Wicked." If you're unfamiliar with this show I offer my greatest condolences and encourage you to change that asap. Anywho, it's the story of Wizard of Oz but from the view of Elpheba, aka the wicked witch of the west. It's her backstory and what led her to become "wicked." One line from the movie that kind of describes the entire story is said by Galinda, "Are people born wicked? Or do they have wickedness thrust upon them?" PS: this song is really difficult for me to play on the piano... Always has been... So, try to ignore the focused looks above the camera =) As always, comment and enjoy!

Challenge Day 3: Fireflies (Original)

Hi Everyone! Today's song is a special one to me. I wrote it on May 12, 2012 for one of my very best friends, Catey. For a majority of our friendship we've been over 1,500 miles apart, so it was hard to actually know what was going on in each other's lives. This year she'll be marrying a wonderful young man, so in honor of their joy I wanted to share this song with you all. It's one of the few songs I've written, and I haven't played guitar in a LONG time, so I hope you enjoy this one! Comment/share if you'd like! Song ideas/Requests are always welcome and encouraged =)

Challenge Day 2: Royals

Day 2 here we go! Well, losing my voice a little bit today, but the show must go on, right? So, this song is one that has been stuck in my head all day and, hopefully, it will soon be stuck in yours too! Comment if you'd like and feel free to share song ideas =)

PS: if you want to play the Uke don't trim your nails super short... It makes your life a lot harder...

Royals, Lorde

Challenge 1: Titanium

Hello World =)

If anyone else out there loves Aeropostale than you probably know that today is their big "Aero Now" launch. I attended one of the VIP events and absolutely loved their new image. New year, new you. So! I've decided to do something I've been too scared to try for years now and that is to bring my passion for music to the web. The video below is the first day of a challenge I've given myself to upload a video of me singing and playing each day (or each day I remember) and just see what happens. If you like what hear, leave a comment. If you don't, then carry on elsewhere.

PS: Sorry for the crummy sound quality! Don't turn it up too loud, my mic and the piano are still learning to become friends... Will be better next time, hopefully!

Titanium, David Guetta
